How has frost brought out to the decontrasting ideas in the poem?

Dear student,

The poet notices nature through the different elements of nature. These include the crow, the tree and snow. He is able to experience the touch of nature through the dust of snow. A hemlock tree is a poisonous tree that forebodes death. It creates a mood of depression and despair.A crow can be associated with something dark, black, and foreboding. Also,the poet has written about a hemlock tree, which is a poisonous tree. Frost wanted to symbolise the feelings of sadness and regret, which is why he has used a hemlock tree. The crow and the hemlock tree represent sorrow. The dust of snow that is shaken off the hemlock tree by the crow stands for joy that Frost experiences. He has, therefore, used an unconventional tree and bird in order to contrast them with joy in the form of snow. He presents disappointment in contrast to hope and faith.

By using the ugly, deadly and bad things on the places of good things, though he did so because his mood was sad..

And on the place of crow he may have used good looking birds like lark of cuckoo, but he uses the ugly crow .

Moreover, instead of using beautiful trees like oak or olive he use the poisonous tree hemlock...

Thus the Robert frost has brought decontrating ideas.
